My third Helmer filing cabinet (i.e. where I store my nail polishes) is about to reach full capacity, and I really, REALLY don't want to get a fourth. Therefore, it's time to shop my collection, and see if there are any polishes I can get rid of.

First lacquer on the proverbial chopping block is one that I haven't worn in a while, O.P.I's Worth a Pretty Penne.

Released as part of the Fall 2015 Venice Collection, I've always been more inclined to wear Worth a Pretty Penne in the Spring; I consider it to be a pastel version of copper.

Worth a Pretty Penne is a warm, soft rosy-copper foil loaded with micro silver, pink and copper shimmers.

The formula is very watery, yet applies easily, and is opaque in one coat. However, I like to apply a second coat just to give the shade extra depth. Worth a Pretty Penne benefits from being chock-full of micro shimmers as they help to level out the polish and camouflage brush strokes. The lacquer dries down without any texture, but the finish is a little dull; this can be corrected with a good top coat. As for wear time, Worth a Pretty Penne got its first chip on day five.

Originally, I thought Worth a Pretty Penne was going to be on the outs, but I've fallen in love with it again, and it's a keeper. 

Worth a Pretty Penne is available on Btw, Sally's is offering a buy 1 get 1 for 50% off mix & match on selected polishes at the moment.
